Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
For easy clean-up, line a roasting pan or a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
Place chicken, skin-side up, on prepared pan. Season with salt and pepper on all sides.
In a small bowl, whisk together honey, garlic, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. Add water to thin, as necessary.
Spoon about half of the sauce over chicken and spread liberally on each piece. Set aside remaining sauce.
Bake, uncovered, for about 50 minutes - 1 hour, or until chicken is cooked through and skin is crispy and golden brown. As the chicken cooks, baste it once or twice with the remaining sauce.

Recipe Notes

Cooking Just for Two? You can easily cut the recipe in half. The grocery store often sells bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs or drumsticks in packages that range from 1.5 - 2 lbs. That's the perfect amount of chicken to cook for two people, and then just cut the sauce ingredients in half as well. Cooking time and temperature will remain the same.
